A Day at Champney’s Tring

 

 

9am – Breakfast

A couple of weeks ago, (as a graduation gift from my sister) I encountered my very first spa day. We arrived in the morning for our complimentary breakfast at around 9am, the buffet was full of pretty plates and even prettier prepared food. The dishes ranged from figs and cream cheese to bitesized granola and yogurt parfaits.

10am – Zumba

In regards to the fitness classes, they ranged from aqua aerobics to legs, bums and tums classes. The majority of the classes were free with the exception of a few. It was my first time doing a Zumba class and while it was far more intense than I had anticipated, it was also far more fun too. We were laughing almost the entire duration of the class, (60 mins).

11:30am – Tea

After the Zumba session, we needed to refuel with tea and cake. We sat in the sun in our white robes and slippers munching on delicious snacks, (I would highly recommend the carrot cake and the banana cake.) We then had a little stroll around the grounds and laid on the sun loungers.

12:00 – Relax

It was then time to take full advantage of the spa facilities. We took a dip in the pool and jacuzzi before dozing off on the water beds.

13:30 – Lunch

Champney’s is a health spa, so the buffet was clearly very healthy. There were lots of options for food (especially if you’re vegan or veggie). The buffet was full of lots of healthy carb varieties, veggies with some lean fish, chicken breast, tofu and more. Pudding was a choice of fruit, healthy crumble or yogurt (or both, you could get as much as you liked.)

15:00 – Jumpa

A little while after lunch, we decided to participate in another exercise class. Jumpa consisted of HIIT (high intensity interval training) circuits involving mini trampolines, the class lasted 1 hour.

17:00 – Facials

Facials are not included in the price of the day and you do need to pay extra for them, our facials were around Β£45 each. This involved a small face, neck, hand and arm massage for circulation followed by the therapist using a range of 5 – 10 Champneys products on your skin. This included a toner, moisturiser and exfoliator. At the end of the facial the therapist also gives you a skin consultation.

Overall I left the spa (at 18:00) feeling refreshed and revitalised, as expected. What was different was the amount the spa offered as part of the day package and the variety of activities and facilities available. I would highly recommend Champney’s Tring.
